Customers visiting Specsavers in Wells were greeted by ghosts and ghouls as staff dressed up for Halloween and raised £75 for Guide Dogs for the Blind.
The team raided their dressing up boxes and came to work dressed in their spookiest outfits. To help raise money for Guide Dogs, they carried out specs MOTs (cleaning and adjustments) in return for donations, and collection buckets were also in store.
A word from the store director
‘We all love dressing up and Halloween is arguably the best day of the year to do it so we thought we’d take full advantage,’ said store manager, Pat Trott.
‘It was also an opportunity for us to raise some money for Guide Dogs, a charity we’ve supported for a number of years.’
Specsavers has proudly supported Guide Dogs for more than 10 years, raising a nationwide total of £270,000 to fund 25 guide dog puppies.
